I have a situation where images coming from a GE C-Arm are seen as one series and are not separated into individual series within a study. These are individual vascular runs (maybe 6 or 10) with each run containing 15-20 images within a study. All images are received but are seen as one series. Conquest forwards these to an iQ-WEBX server that keys into the SeriesInstanceUID (0020,000E) to distinguish one series from another. The header shows the SeriesInstanceUID does not change between each run and that what’s causing this problem. In fact, the SeriesInstanceUID is the same as the StudyInstanceUID.
I’ve found that the InstanceNumber (0020,0013) is unique to each acquisition within each study and I’ve attempted to add the value of this tag as a suffix to the SeriesInstanceUID using an ImportConverter. While I can replace the SeriesInstanceUID with the InstanceNumber, I haven’t figured out how to simply append the value of this tag as a suffix.
Are there any ideas on how I could accomplish this?
Any help would be appreciated.
